Kent Blazy: Kent Blazy was raised in Lexington, Kentucky. At an early age, he played rhythm guitar and sang in various local bands, citing The Byrds, Rodney Crowell and Joe Ely as influences. He later played for Canadian singer Ian Tyson. Later on, Blazy met former Exile member Mark Gray, who suggested that Blazy move to Nashville, Tennessee.Eventually, he signed to a publishing contract, but the publishing company closed; despite the loss of contract, Gary Morris sent Blazy's "Headed for a Heartache" into top 5 on the country charts.

By the late 1980s, Blazy met with a then-unknown Garth Brooks, who gave him the idea for a song entitled "If Tomorrow Never Comes." He and Brooks co-wrote the song, which went on to become Brooks' first number one hit. Brooks continued to record Blazy's material throughout the 1990s, including the singles "Ain't Goin' Down ('Til the Sun Comes Up)," "It's Midnight Cinderella", "She's Gonna Make It," "Somewhere Other Than the Night" and the George Jones duet "Beer Run (B Double E Double Are You In?)". He also co-wrote "That's What I Get for Lovin' You" by Diamond Rio and "Can't Get Enough" by Patty Loveless in the late 1990s.

Blazy, along with songwriters Pat Alger, Tony Arata and Kim Williams, recorded an album entitled A Songwriters' Tribute to Garth Brooks, which included their renditions of songs that they had written for Brooks. This album was released in 2001 via VFR Records. Other songs that Blazy has co-written include "You Can Let Go" by Crystal Shawanda and "Gettin' You Home (The Black Dress Song)" by Chris Young from 2008 and 2009 respectively, as well as American Idol season 8 finalist Danny Gokey's debut single "My Best Days Are Ahead of Me."
Brice Long: Brice has enjoyed a successful 25 year music career. As a songwriter he has had cuts with Garth Brooks, George Strait, Chris Stapleton, Hank Williams Jr, Randy Houser, Josh Turner, Reba McEntire, Gary Allan, Chris Young,  Jon Pardi, The Grascals, Casey James, Darryl Worley, Randy Travis, Craig Campbell, Gretchen Wilson, John Michael Montgomery, Porter Wagoner and many more.  
 
Brice’s songwriting hits include the #1 singles “Heartache On The Dance Floor” by Jon Pardi and “Nothing On But The Radio” by Gary Allan.  Randy Houser’s “Like a Cowboy”,a song that also garnered Brice a CMA nomination for Song of the Year.  Other recent chart toppers are Randy Houser’s debut single, “Anything Goes”,  “Today”from Gary Allan,Casey James’ “Let’s Don’t Call It A Night”and Jon Pardi’s, “What I Can’t Put Down”.
 
Brice Long is signed to Sony / ATV Music Publishing. He is a native of Hopkinsville, KY. His self-titled album is available on iTunes or wherever digital music is streamed and sold.
Chris Wallin: With his unique gift for finding the extraordinary in ordinary life, Chris Wallin hass established himself as one of Nashville's most sought-after songwriters.  

For the past several years, Wallin has topped the charts with classics-in-the-making for the industry's biggest stars: “Love Me If You Can” by Toby Keith, "Don't Blink" by Kenny Chesney, “I’m Tryin’” for Trace Adkins, “Something To Be Proud Of” and “Speed” by Montgomery Gentry.
Raised in a small town in East Tennessee, Wallin was influenced by the likes of Jim Croce, James Taylor and Merle Haggard, as well as his own musical family – especially his mother, a singer herself. She recorded and performed in Nashville for a time, and the experience made an indelible impression on the seven-year-old Chris.

He began writing songs at age 12 and moved to Music City several years later, making the dues-paying rounds of writers nights and songwriting contests.  He caught a break when his songs caught the ear of a small publishing company (co-owned by eventual Taylor Swift collaborator Liz Rose), helping to launch him on a professional career that has led to award-winning collaborations with fellow hit-makers like Jim Collins, Craig Wiseman, Tim Nichols and Jeffrey Steele.
Wallin has worked hard to achieve his place on the “A List” of Nashville songwriters, and doesn't take his status for granted.  Chris says  “Back then I used to buy 50 or so McDonald's 29 cent hamburgers a week and freeze them solid. I could eat all week on $15 … They weren’t bad, except the last few get a little crusty from freezer burn.”

Artists who have cut Chris’s songs include Lorrie Morgan, Montgomery Gentry, Sammy Kershaw, Tommy Shane Steiner, Trace Adkins, Michael Peterson, Anthony Smith, Jeffrey Steele, Confederate Railroad, Neal McCoy, Brian McComas, Brad Paisley, Joe Diffie, Diamond Rio, Kenny Chesney, Toby Keith, Joe Nichols and many more.
Phillip White: Phillip White is a Academy of Country Music award winning and Grammy nominated songwriter and producer that has spent the last 20 plus years writing songs for some of the biggest artists in the business. George Strait, Luke Bryan, Chris Ledoux, Vince Gill,Darius Rucker, Reba, Blake Shelton, Rascal Flatts, and Jake Owenare some of the artists that have recorded Phillip's work. Among these include the 2003 ACM Song of the Year "I'm Movin' On", TheTheme song for Reba's self titled hit TV show "I'm A Survivor" and Blake Shelton's "Nobody But Me."

Over the past couple decades he's been published by some of music row's most respected publishers including stops at Murrah Music, Disney, Universal, Sea Gayle, and Spirit Music. As a performer, White has played some of the most legendary venues in the nation, including the Ryman Auditorium,The Grand Ol Opry House, The Station Inn, The Louisiana Hayride, The Bluebird Cafe, The Disney Theater, and The Florida Theater just to name a few.

Phillip has just recently signed a Publishing deal with Thrive Music Publishing and agreed to serve the company as Vice President of Creative.
